OMG this book got me interested as i found the author on tiktok, wanted to read this book, and omg so many feelings, im dyslexic so i find it had to read some of the words but i got the meaning of each character and their powers.

first off, the main characters are brilliantly well written and i feel as if i connect to them,
you go through so many emotions when reading this book, Anger, sadness, happiness and shock
did not expect to find the ending and i am dying to read the second book in the seri

This is very much an Adult book with a trigger warning for sexual abuse so no younger readers, but for adults who love a fantastic story and don't mind the content, this story kept me wanting to read on and know more. I loved the characters and the emotion behind this story, you could really get in tune and sympathise with them. The relationships, explanations, storyline were all easy to follow, detailed and full of action and then just when you're in the thick of it and reading faster to know m ...more

The world and characters are painted beautifully in this book. There’s a great balance in the darkness of the monsters and their redeeming qualities. The only thing that bothered me throughout the book is I couldn’t figure out why these powerful creatures couldn’t kill the king with their abilities. I’m assuming from the secret at the end of the book, that’s why no one has been able to but it would have been nice to get clarification about that. Or maybe to what extent people can use their power ...more

Looking forward to the next book!

I enjoyed the book, it was different and quite dark, literally lol. We only see a small part of a much bigger world and hopefully we'll get to see more of the 'bright side' in the future. It's pretty slow burn, but i'm looking forward to how everything comes together

Great start to an original fantasy

I loved the idea behind the condentai. They were so original to me, with their unique powers. Valina was kinda similar to a vampire in that she feeds and craves blood. I did anticipate some twist happening with the king (no spoilers) and am looking forward to finding out what happens next!

Strong characters

Main female character is strong, perhaps the strongest of all of them which is nice to read. The lore of the world is interesting and the end has a twist I did not see coming in the slightest!

I skim through it at some point it was okay. That one guy that kept repeating "My dear" was annoying.

I always found it odd when main character are hundreds of years old and has known her love interest for that long yet now they start to feel an attraction for them.
